Hi, my name is Sam Hughes. I’ve always had an eye for the stranger things in life; those little peculiarities that may appear to be complete nonsense to the untrained eye, but upon closer inspection are revealed to be something astonishing. This accounts for my profound interest in science-fiction, which pushes the boat of reality so far out that the worlds it creates are almost unrecognisable. And yet, after spending some time amongst their alien environments, they begin to make a lot of sense indeed.
So many things about our own world can be better understood by modelling them in another, and that’s what I’m looking to capture in my own writing.
I’m not going to invite disaster by claiming to be a “good” writer. If I were a good writer, I wouldn’t be studying writing. And that’s why I’m studying writing.
